Oscar meets the real oscars.. aka Astronotus ocellatus.
Modelled and textured in Blender. I started out doing a model of the statuette.. then realised that a lot of people have already done that.. so stopped refining mine(its pretty rough) and added a few othe Oscars 🙂the Oscar Cichlid was way more easier to model than the rough statuette!
decided to leave at this detail.. and then just do the rest with textures.
the front texture is from a photograph.. the back was painted on..
the fish were easier to make.. basically they have oblong pancake like bodies with fins
they all have the same refrence image as a texture.. quick and dirty
heres the final thing on sketchfab.com

For a recent contest at Sketchfab,com i created a diorama of a few aliens(Xenomorphs from the Alien franchise) attacking 3 hapless humans.
The constraint was that it all had to be in Lego style.. to coincide with the release of the Lego Movie. The results were annunced today, and this model won 3rd place!
Heres how i built the winning model(3rd place):
heres the model built with Blender:
I’d modelled all 3 main phases of the xenomorphs’ life cycle – the Face hugger, the Chestbuster and the adult.
and heres a video explaining the biology of the Xenomorph..

The 100th birthday of Bill Finger was this week.. i know you probably missed it.
Its not your fault. Blame the publishing industry or Bob Kane or whoever you like..
The fact remains that Batman would be unrecognizable without Mr.Finger.
He’s the writer best known as the uncredited co-creator, with Bob Kane, of the DC Comicscharacter Batman, as well as the co-architect of the series’ development.
Finger offered such suggestions as giving the character a cowl instead of the domino mask, a cape instead of wings, adding gloves, and removing the red sections from the original costume.
– more at Wikipedia
heres a quick run through of why he should be important to every Batman fan.
He later said his suggestions were influenced byLee Falk‘s popular The Phantom, a syndicated newspaper comic strip character with which Kane was familiar as well, and that he devised the name Bruce Wayne for the character’s secret identity. As Finger described, “Bruce Wayne’s first name came from Robert Bruce, the Scottish patriot. Wayne, being a playboy, was a man of gentry. I searched for a name that would suggest colonialism. I tried Adams, Hancock … then I thought of Mad Anthony Wayne.” Kane decades later in his autobiography described Finger as “a contributing force on Batman right from the beginning… I made Batman a superhero-vigilante when I first created him. Bill turned him into a scientific detective.” Finger biographer Marc Tyler Nobleman described, “Bob [Kane] showed Bat-Man to [editor] Vin [Sullivan] — without Bill. Vin promptly wanted to run Bat-Man, and Bob negotiated a deal — without including Bill.”
Finger also wrote many of the original 1940s Green Lantern
stories and would go on to contribute to the development of numerous comic book series.
